Several gaps were identified during the first phase of the network, namely:
• Assessing governance issues related to AMR surveillance,
• Assessing the impact and socioeconomic value of antimicrobial resistance surveillance,
• The need for better guidance on how to assess environmental antimicrobial resistance surveillance,
• And the need for more information on the usefulness of different assessment tools.
CoEvalAMR network aims to consolidate guidance for AMU and AMR surveillance evaluation by:
• Promoting knowledge exchange and peer-learning between people working on evaluation of One Health surveillance for AMU and AMR,
• Bridging expertise from social sciences in governance and impact evaluation
• Reviewing strategies for effective One Health governance to assess their suitability for governance of AMU and AMR surveillance
• Identifying and adapting relevant evaluation methods for evaluating governance and impacts of One Health surveillance for AMU and AMR, including the capacity of such systems to inform decision making.
• Applying selected evaluation methods to a series of country-based case studies
